So, my fiance proposed right before I started my first year of optometry school. I have no idea what date to choose for the wedding. I've always dreamed of a fall wedding and don't like the idea of doing the wedding in the summer because of the Missouri humidity. At the same time, I don't want to be in class the week of my wedding and have tests the next week, or something like that. Optometry school is a huge commitment (23 credit hour semesters) so I'm worried about being distracted from school with wedding stuff and vice versa.
The dates I'm looking at are:
Nov. 11, 2011 (11-11-11) : Drawback is that its in the middle of the semester and I could be very stressed w/ school. Plus side, its a sweet date!
Nov. 26 2011 : Drawbacks are that it's the weekend after thanksgiving and it's cold. Plus side is the whole previous week I wouldn't be in school because of fall break.
Then there's one of the first couple weeks in August, so I wouldn't have to worry about school at all, but I'm giving up my lifelong dream of a fall wedding...
I don't want January because then I would have Xmas, anniversary, and my birthday all within 4 weeks of each other.
ANY advice you have would be greatly appreciate!! I've been going back and forth on the date for weeks and everyone is telling me I need to pick one to get a venue booked. Help!!!!
